Overview of Grant Solomon
What happened to Grant?
Grant Solomon was a good person. He was only 18 years old, set to be a senior at Grace Christian Academy that fall. He was a star baseball player, attended church, and was a talented musician. He had a photographic memory. Grant was bright, upbeat, and well-respected by those around him. He had a strong intuition, and always knew when to help a friend in need.
In 2013, Grant’s parents divorced, but Grant remained protective of his mother, Angie, and his younger sister, Gracie. Aaron Solomon had a history of being abusive to his family. Grant had recently turned 18, and wanted to be able to testify in court about the abuse.
The day Grant died
The morning of July 20, 2020, Grant had met up with his father, Aaron, at a baseball training facility. This was the first time Grant had been alone with his father in two years. He had expressed to those around him that he was scarred of his father.
According to Freedom4Gracie, Aaron claimed that he saw Grant exit the truck, but then looked away. When he looks back up he sees Grant’s truck rolling into the ditch.
By 8:40 a.m., Aaron calls 911.
In the 911 call, Aaron is heard saying, “My son’s truck backed over him, it’s rolled over him and drug him into the ditch and it’s on top of him,” Aaron told the dispatcher. “He’s not alert, he’s out and he’s trapped. I got three guys here and he’s trapped under the truck.”
Interestingly, during the 911 call, Aaron mentions that there were “three guys” at the scene who checking in on Grant. When authorities arrived minutes later, there were no witnesses to be found or ever identified. Aaron is the only known witness. The information Aaron relayed to police is much different from what the crime scene reveals.
The scene was treated like private property. The surrounding grass was not disturbed, and there were no tire tracks in the grass or concrete. Grant’s glasses - which he couldn’t see without- were discovered by the sidewalk. The weight of the truck was not on Grant, the truck was on him but not pinning him to the ground. Grant sustained two injuries a blow to his jaw and a fatal blow to the back of the head.
Grant’s white 2015 Toyota Tacoma truck was in park, despite Aaron’s belief that Grant forgot to put the car in park. Grant’s shoes had no signs of scuff marks. A baseball bat was missing from Grant’s car. There was no forensic testing performed on Grant’s car – Aarron denied it. Unfortunately, Grant was pronounced dead at the hospital. Strangely, Aaron denied an autopsy and organ donation.
Where the case stands today.
Aaron was given Grant’s truck after the incident and drove the truck for several months. At some point, Aaron had the truck totaled, and sold it at auction. Thankfully, Angie was able to track down and purchase the 2015 white truck that belonged to her son.
In May 2021, Grant’s sister, Gracie bravely came forward with her story of sexual abuse at the hadns of her father, Aaron. In a Youtube video she explains why she was terrified of her father, and why she believes that he father is responsible for Grant’s death. The family is asking for the Gallatin police to reinvestigate Grant’s death.
